FBI Conducted 3.4 Million Data Record Searches in 2021, According to Report | National Review

The FBI conducted as many as 3.4 million searches of data in the U.S. without a warrant over the year 2021, according to a new government report.

The Annual Statistical Transparency Report, was published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Thursday and focuses on the intelligence community’s use of national security authorities for surveillance under U.S. law.

The information was previously gathered by the National Security Agency, the U.S. military’s signals intelligence agency, but was transferred to the civilian-led FBI per the U.S.A. FREEDOM Act, passed in 2015.

The figure represented a 260 percent increase from the previous coverage year, 2020, where the FBI had conducted around 1.3 million searches.

Authority for the FBI’s activity was cited as drawing from Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. That law, passed in 1978 during the Cold War, authorizes collection of private data by “non-U.S. persons,” though their communications with U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents may be accessed, as well.

Section 702 has come under withering criticism from privacy advocates, who claim it allows the federal government to spy on Americans with little oversight and due process.

Former president Donald Trump, who last signed a bill reauthorizing the law in 2018, had openly questioned its use to allegedly spy on his presidential campaign, which are part of the focus of Special Counsel John Durham’s ongoing investigation. That year, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court – created by the 1978 Act to authorize warrants – had rebuked the FBI for its handling of information gathered under the statute.

Section 702’s congressional authorization expires on December 31, 2023, and experts anticipate a political fight for its reauthorization.

Biden’s New Ministry of Truth Is Already Adding A New Wing – PJ Media

When Politico revealed the existence of the Board in an offhanded statement buried 60 paragraphs down in its Wednesday “Politico Playbook,” it said that the Department of Homeland Security was “standing up a new Disinformation Governance Board to coordinate countering misinformation related to homeland security, focused specifically on irregular migration and Russia.” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, however, went farther than that almost immediately, saying on Thursday: “We have just established a mis- and disinformation governance board in the Department of Homeland Security to more effectively combat this threat not only to election security, but to our homeland security.” And when Jen Psaki defended Biden’s new Ministry of Truth on Thursday, she went farther still: “We know there has been a range of [disinformation] out there about a range of topics, I mean, including COVID for example, and also elections and eligibility.”
